So I wanted to have some fun with my Crown Tundra legendaries and try and give them actual movesets and use them in the Battle Tower. And so, I eventually got to Regigigas. I wanted something to handle Rock and Steel types. Earthquake hit the Ally as well, and I didn’t want to use Hammer Arm because of the Speed Drop and there are other Fighting-Type moves Regigigas can learn that not only have no drawback, but also are 100% accurate. Body Press is a strong move and Regigigas’s 110 Defense is pretty good, but Drain Punch, while weaker, allows for some recovery to keep it alive longer. So, which should I use?

If this is against the moveset rules, or is too subjective, then I’ll take it down. Thanks in advance!

Regigigas' 110 Defense is good, but it's 160 Attack is better. Drain Punch's healing will likely be more valuable, as it'll help Regigigas stay alive longer. It's only 5 base power points lower than Body Press.

Abilities that affect the physical attack stat, like slow start, still affect body press.
But it's very weak with regigigas's ability...
Huh!? I didn't know that
RIP my answer
If slow start effects body press, drain punch is better than it.
